Big Ben throws for 265 yards, two TDs in victory
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/21/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw multiple touchdown passes for the first since Week 4, completing 23 of 33 throws for 265 yards and two scores Monday against the Texans. Roethlisberger did not toss an interception but lost a fumble while getting sacked.
It was a nice bounceback for Roethlisberger, who had accounted for two touchdowns and two turnovers in Weeks 5-6.
Roethlisberger found rookie Martavis Bryant for a 35-yard touchdown and running back Le'Veon Bell for a 2-yard score in a 24-point onslaught right before halftime. He had a touchdown pass called back when it was ruled Antonio Brown did not get both feet down.
Roethlisberger plays the Colts in Week 8.
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger finally falls to Browns
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/12/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger arrived in Cleveland with an 18-1 lifetime record against the Browns. He left 18-2 - and it wasn't close. The 31-10 blowout marked his first defeat to their turnpike rival since 2009.
Roethlisberger was held without a touchdown until firing a meaningless one to 2014 disappointment Lance Moore with just 2:36 remaining in the game to chop the deficit to 31-10. He should have tossed one earlier in the fourth, but he overthrow an uncovered Markus Wheaton in the end zone.
His finished the game 21 of 42 for 228 yards and a tipped interception late in the third quarter. He will try to right himself and his offense when Pittsburgh hosts Houston in Week 7 on Monday Night Football.
Ben Roethlisberger should carve up Browns again
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/9/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger disappointed Fantasy owners in what seemed like a favorable matchup Week 5 at Jacksonville. But just because he was short on Fantasy points doesn't mean he didn't play well, completing 72.2 percent of his passes for 273 yards. He was simply lacking in touchdowns.
So you should still like his chances for big numbers Week 6 at Cleveland, especially since he had them against the Browns back in Week 1, throwing for 365 yards. Of course, he also had just one touchdown pass in that game.
The Browns have given up the eighth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, though, so I'm thinking Roethlisberger has a better chance than not of throwing for a couple scores in this one. It's not like Le'Veon Bell is piling up the touchdowns, so what would stop him?
Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Roethlisberger ninth among quarterbacks for this week, and I'm good with that given that Tony Romo and Tom Brady both have tough matchups and Matthew Stafford has been equally unreliable.
Ben Roethlisberger can't take advantage of prime matchup
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/5/14) Quarterbacks have taken great pleasure in padding their stats against the Jaguars this season, which makes Ben Roethlisberger's performance Sunday a pretty disappointing one.
Roethlisberger was efficient, in completing 26 of 36 passes in the game, but had trouble finishing in the red zone. With the exception of a 10-play drive capped off by a 1-yard pass to Michael Palmer, Roethlisberger saw two drives stall in the red zone, with both ending when Roethlisberger took ill-timed sacks.
Given the way to game went and how ineffective Jacksonville's offense was throughout, the Steelers had little reason to ask Roethlisberger to force things. Still, we were certainly hoping for more from Roethlisberger against the lowly Jaguars, who had allowed 28 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season; Roethlisberger's 14-point effort is by far the lowest for a quarterback against the Jaguars this season.
Roethlisberger has a good chance to bounce back in Week 6, with the Browns on the schedule. He carved Cleveland up for 365 yards in a prior meeting in Week 1, and should be worth starting even coming off this disappointing showing.
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger throws one TD in Week 5 win
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/5/14) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 273 yards and one touchdown during a 17-9 win Week 5 at Jacksonville. He completed 26 of 36 passes, while rushing for minus-2 yards on three carries.
Roethlisberger's lone touchdown pass was a 1-yarder to tight end Michael Palmer in the second quarter, which gave Pittsburgh a 10-3 lead. He has now totaled one or no passing touchdowns in three of five games.
Roethlisberger also lost a fumble early in the fourth quarter inside the red zone. The football was knocked loose on a quarterback sack.
The Steelers are back in action Week 6 at Cleveland.
